In a question and answer session held on Twitter, Nokia’s Niklas Savander rejected a call for the Finnish handset manufacturer to turn to Google’s Android OS.

User diogoney voiced the frustrations many have felt over Nokia’s persistence with the Symbian platform: “why does Nokia refuse to use Android? It has the hype, good press and devs Nokia needs so bad!”

To which Savander replied: “our platform choices (symbian and meego) gives us the best opp to deliver value and of course qt will play key role.”

Savander wasn’t alone in rejecting Google’s popular mobile OS. Twitterer LessThanDoug chipped in with “Android is not the ans. We need Symbian to be cleaned up and given more power and better UI, now though,” which prompted an enthusiastic “AMEN!” from Nokia’s executive vice president.

Nokia's imminent N8 handset will be the last N-Series device to feature Symbian, with the new MeeGo (a mixture of Intel’s Moblin and Nokia’s Maemo) OS set to make its mobile debut on the N9.
